Permits are required for temporary tents in most municipalities in Ontario when the tent size exceeds 646 square feet (60m2), per the Ontario Building Code. Tents that exceed 2425 square feet (225 m2) typically require an Engineering Site Review after the tent has been installed. Tents smaller than 60m2 (653 sq. ft) generally do not require a permit.
Clients will be responsible for all permit and engineering fees (if required), as levied by their respective Building Departments.
Important Note: All clients are advised to contact their local building department for details regarding permit fees and requirements for your area (fees and requirements vary widely from area to area across the province).
Upon request, Affair Tent & Event Rentals will be pleased to apply for tent permits on your behalf (additional charges apply – quote for permit application will be based upon distance and complexity of the submission package). All of our tents are fully engineered, insured, certified with the City of Toronto Building Department and meet all Provincial safety guidelines and engineering requirements.
If Affair Tent & Event Rentals is not contracted to se¬cure permits and engineering site review (if required) the client agrees to obtain all necessary permits and meet any/all associated requirements at their expense, as stipulated by the applicable regional building department. It will be the responsibility of the client to ensure said permits are available to municipal or provincial inspectors upon request during the course of the event.
Due to the potentially serious hazard of contacting underground services (hydro, gas, cable, phone, etc.) with ground driven spikes, which can extend up to 42 inches into the ground, it will be the responsibility of the client to ensure that all underground utilities are located and marked prior to the scheduled installation of a tent.
Affair Tent & Event Rentals is a registered contractor with Ontario One Call and is available upon request to contact that organization on behalf of the client to arrange locates from One Call members. Please note that not all utility providers are members of One Call and it is the responsibility of the client to ensure that all applicable utility providers are contacted to provide locates. Locates are typically provided free of charge by utility providers and require 7-10 days notice.
*Note*: Due to the fact that NOT all utility providers are members of Ontario One Call, a private locate company may need to be contracted, in addition to Ontario One Call, to ensure that the ground area is clear prior to staking. Client will be responsible for the cost of any private locates.
Written proof of completed locates are to be provided to Affair Rentals a minimum of 48 hours prior to the scheduled installation date/time. If the client fails to obtain and provide the necessary clearances, client will be responsible for the added cost of ballast
weights (if available) in lieu of spikes and any associated transport fees. If proof of locate completion is not provided within these timelines, Affair Rentals may, at its option, elect to postpone the installation until locates have been completed, or terminate the rental agreement. Deposits will not be refunded.
Note: Pool lines, lawn sprinkler lines, septic beds and other privately installed items (i.e. hydro lines to private parking lot light standards) will not be listed on municipal locate reports, Affair Tent & Event Rentals will rely upon the client to clear1y mark the location of such items prior to the erection of the tent. Affair Tent & Event Rentals will not be held liable for any damages or related costs should stake lines come in contact with these services.
